Is your guy husband material? Depending on your age, you’ve probably asked yourself this question before. I mean, that is the end goal, right? We all want to find the person we’re going to spend the rest of our lives with, but that doesn’t mean we should settle. I know a lot of people who have settled in relationships that weren’t pushing them in a positive direction (I used to be one of them). So, how do you know if he’s the one?
He’s Your Biggest Fan
I know this sounds a little conceited, but it’s incredibly important. You want your partner to be rooting for you in everything that you do. He should be pushing you to better yourself and encouraging you to pursue your passions. If he’s trying to hold you back, that’s a huge red flag. You need to feel comfortable sharing your goals with the person you love. If you want to start a business or pick up a new hobby, he should be there for you every step of the way. If you’ve got yourself a guy like this, he’s husband material; hold onto him!
He Can’t Keep His Hands Off You
Scandalous. I know not everyone has the same opinions on PDA, however, if your guy isn’t afraid to kiss you on the cheek, hold your hand, or put his arm around you in public, he’s a keeper. Not only is it incredibly sweet and endearing, but it shows that he’s proud to call you his.
Patience is a great trait to have. Especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Let’s be real, we’ve all gotten on our partner’s nerves before, and they’ve gotten on ours. The important part is how you handle it. The way your man handles a stressful situation says a lot about his character and what kind of husband he will be.
Matt and I had been dating only a few months before we went on our first vacation together. We went to Savannah, Georgia and then to Hilton Head, South Carolina. Let’s just say that everything that could have gone wrong while traveling, went wrong. Our flights were delayed for hours and then completely cancelled. We had to pay for hotels to sleep in and delay our trip by 2 days, deal with rude customer service reps at the airport, and so on and so forth. The whole time this s*** show was going on, I was expecting some sort of break down from Matt (my last boyfriend would have lost it). I was waiting for him to lose his cool and take his frustration out on me, but guess what, he didn’t! He was totally calm and mature about the whole thing, which made the experience so much more enjoyable. We were able to laugh about our misfortune instead of fight about it. I kid you not, that was when I knew I was going to marry him.
If your partner consistently shows up for you when he says he’s going to, that’s a tell-tale sign that he’s in it for the long haul. You need someone that you can rely on. Flaking on plans or not returning phone calls shows that he just doesn’t value the relationship. If you can’t rely on him now, what makes you think you’ll be able to rely on him down the road when things get tough?
Finding “the one” doesn’t happen the same way for every person. In my personal experience, it kind of was love at first sight (as corny as that sounds). We both just knew really early on that this was the real deal.
